In Swiss German, future tenses aren't really necessary to talk about future plans. Most of the time, words or phrases like 'tomorrow', 'next month' or 'next year' serve as indicators of the future.
It's not that simple in English, however. We can use two tenses when talking about future plans or decisions: be going + infinitive or the present continuous.
So, how do we use these two tenses to talk about future plans and arrangements in English?
In Swiss German, the verb schmecken is used for both smell and taste in English. This is why some Swiss speakers only use one of these two verbs. But in English, they don't mean the same thing. So when should I use smell, and when should I use taste?
In German and Swiss German, spenden is the verb used when giving something for a good cause. Although it sounds similar to the English verb spend, it doesn't mean the same thing - another false friend to avoid. In English, the verb used to talk about giving money, clothes or food to charity is donate.
